that could be used to, basically, block the chinese navy from moving into the western pacific from the east china sea. they have been a source of daily confrontations on the sea and now in the air between japan and china. you have two new administrations, one in china, one in japan. there is a hardening of positions on both sides. there's the usual diplomatic feelers, but i haven't talked to anyone who takes them particularly seriously. and we are one ep3 incident away from potentially a major conflict between japan and china. now, do i think it would be a war? no. on the other hand, the tensions and the domestic tensions in both countries, i think, mean that this would not be very easy to solve. and whoever backs down either before conflict or after conflict is going to lose an enormous amount of credibility and influence in the region. both sides know that, and that's why they are now moving forward to getting much closer to war. the third thing is managing this broader, broader china relationship. and here's where i'll link it back to what dani said and wrap up my comments. this is the l

delivered distinguished service to his country in the navy and the democratic party and the people of this country as the 2004 presidential nominee for the democratic party. he is really a brilliant man. he was a debater at yale and won awards for his skilled oratory. before he graduated college, he was a local critic of the vietnam war. upon graduation, senator kerry volunteered to serve in the united states navy, and serve he did. later he said, "did i it because it was the right thing to do." senator kerry learned the value of service at home. his father was a foreign service officer. his mother a nurse during world war ii. he served two tours as a navy lieutenant in the jungles and rivers in vietnam. he was awarded the silver star for his gallantry, a bronze star for valor also, and three purple hearts. but even after his service in the war, his opposition continued. on april 22, 1971, senator kerry became the first vietnam veteran to testify before congress about the war, when he appeared before the senate foreign relations committee, which was chaired by the famous senator fu
when he was a pilot in the united states navy. is he a good pilot or bad pilot? yes or no. there could have been a malfunction in one of the aircraft. they are trying to pigeonhole chuck hagel as a dove, someone who is not going to seek the strong interests of the united states, and isn't schooled up on policy. i remember that surge in iraq. there was a raging debate in this country as to how involved we would have to get to finish off what we started in iraq and senator hagel was against it at the time because he was thinking about the amount of resources and money we were going to spend that wasn't being accounted for. and so it's a complex answer. it's not a yes or no answer which, of course, mccain likes to put into a box. the other thing about syria, where is the march? where is the cry from the american peel right now to go get involved in somebody else's war? we don't have the resources right now. you can't put a number on death before we do get involved in something like this. and the american people aren't yearning to get into another conflict in syria. it's not our fight righ

to senator blunt and blumenthal about modernizing our navy. i would like to hear your thought process. how are we going to do this? where is the money coming from? how are you going to advise the president in making these decisions? we're looking at sequester, we're looking at budget constraints. how does this all tie together? what would be your advice to the president on how the pentagon is going to address all of those budget constraints? >> well, let's start with where we are. the pentagon is adjusting and i think, responsible -- responsibly to our future based on the budget control act of 2011. you know the details of that. the chief has submitted plans as we rebalance and refit and unwind a second war and all the dynamics that are changing them since the last decade. it gives us new opportunities. audits, all the acquisition focus, accountability, we are being forced -- the department of defense -- to take a hard look at its priorities. as i said before, it begins with mission then the resources to fulfill that mission and then what are the priorities within that mission. how do you
to serve in the united states navy during the vietnam war, john kerry was rewarded the silver star, a bronze star and three purposal hearts. upon returning home, he became a national leader in the fight for justice for veterans who served beside him in vietnam as well as veterans for wars before and since vietnam. he joined with others to found the vietnam veterans of america organization. he has worked hard here in the senate over all these years to secure veterans' benefits for an extension of the g.i. bill of rights for higher education, for appropriate treatment for veterans with posttraumatic stress disorder. as we all know, senator kerry has played a leading role in shaping american foreign policy for many years in his position on the foreign relations committee and as chair of that distinguished committee. as chair of that, he was instrumental in securing passage of the new start treaty, an arms control accord with russia that is helping to reduce the danger of nuclear proliferation. he has served as a trusted special envoy to afghanistan, sudan and pakistan at crucial momen

of the competitive navies, the french or spanish, in the british navy, a british naval officer had to stop as a midshipman. he had to be able to do -- start as a midshipman. he had to be able to do every job on the ship. they were not the aristocracy given commands -- giving commands. they were middle-class people who became highly professional. and competent. their crews were built on being highly professional and competent. as you know, to a degree, cruise benefited when they captured or destroyed any ship -- crews benefited when they captured or destroyed any ship. to a degree, they became entrepreneurs of battle. what nelson understood was they were self-motivated and extraordinarily competent entities. what he had to do was move them into position where those motivations and those talents could be put in position. he did not have to fight the fight. he did not have to micromanage. he had to build them into confident, competent, capable, self-contained crews and leaders, maneuver them into position where they could have the effect that he wanted, and then do it. that was very similar t
and perspectives. we both love the navy. i still do to this day. but i had different feelings from john about the war. for both of us, vietnam was a deep point in our live, the way it was for many of our generation. here in the senate late one night, -- a trip of senator, congressman going somewhere in the world, we were going to kuwait after the first gulf war. john and i found others on a c130. neither could sleep. so we talked. we talked late in to the night about our lives and our war. shortly thereafter george mitchell and bob dole through us together on committee to investigate the fate of americans missing from the war which we fought. it was a tough time. and emotional issue where rambo was a box office smash and "newsweek" magazine covered provocative photographs which asked whether americans were still alive over there. in to that called rein, we were thrown together. some were suspicious of boast us -- both of us. together we found common ground. i will never forget standing with john in the which he spent a number of years of his life. alone in the cell listening to him talk about
of the negotiations. the suspect is jimmy lee dikes and a war veteran that won awards in the navy in the 1960s. the standoff has been going on since tuesday afternoon. more than 90 hours at this point. that's when police say that he boarded a stopped school bus just up the road behind me and demanded two children come with him. when the bus driver refused, police say he shot and killed the driver and made off with the boy named ethan who has a mild form of autism. police have been negotiating with the suspect ever since. they have been talking with him through a ventilation pipe attached to the bunker and this entire community is hoping and praying for a peaceful resolution here. the sheriff says that he is thank the suspect for taking care of the child and the child so far is physically unharmed. >> we will come back to you for an update. >> were of the attention in washington has been on guns. wednesday's senate hearing on changing the gun laws was the chamber's first since the newtown, connecticut shootings and the lines were drawn for change and the roadblocks have been going up. i want to
